If you’ve had a nose job, fillers, cheek implants, face lift and lip injections (as well as a little tummy tuck and liposuction), the chances are you’re hooked on plastic surgery! There’s nothing wrong with a couple of procedures to target areas of your body and face you’re unhappy with, but there is a limit. So, how much plastic surgery is really too much?

Celebrity Culture

Looking at celebrities such as Mickey Rourke fills us with a sense of fear – the once young, handsome heart throb of the 1980’s has become an unrecognizable figure after hundreds of plastic surgery procedures. Plastic surgeons in NYC often see hundreds of patients a day, and many of them are repeat visitors returning for a second or third procedure. Heidi Montag, Dontaella Versace and Jocelyn Wildenstein are three examples of plastic surgery gone horrible wrong in today’s beauty obsessed culture.

Look at your Reasons

If you’ve had a few procedures already, it’s important to realize that you will never look ‘perfect’ – but it is imperfection that makes you an individual. If you’re considering surgery for the first time, think of one or two aspects of your appearance which concern you the most, and limit yourself to addressing those with a cosmetic procedure for each. You don’t want to become unrecognizable and disfigured by surgery! The most successful plastic surgery procedures are those carried out on individuals who have reviews serious issues with one feature – such as rhinoplasty for a crooked nose or an eyelid lift for those with drooping eyelids. The results should look natural and beautiful.

Don’t become a victim of the plastic surgery revolution – choose a reputable surgeon who understands that less is more and will encourage you to enhance and focus on your natural beauty.
